Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe Comments on Band’s New Material

In an interview with NoiseyLamb of God‘s Randy Blythe has broken the band’s silence about their new material, describing what they’re working on as being “pretty monstrous.”

We’ve known for a while that the band has been writing material for a new album, after they Tweeted the following message back in November.

Aside from that though, all has been quiet. Blythe confirms in the interview though, that the band is playing a “bunch of big gigs this year” and that “sooner or later we’ll write an album.” Blythe is also working on a new book, detailing the incident that took place in the Czech Republic, and the following legal wrangles that revolved around it.

Blythe said: “In the immediate we’re going to Soundwave in Australia in February, which will be warm and awesome. It’ll be our third Soundwave. Going to Indonesia after that for a few days, hopefully I’ll get some time to surf. We’ll be doing some bigger gigs in the summer too. We had to take some time off because the tour cycle took about three years, like writing recording touring, and then I got arrested. The whole legal thing took over a year of my life, during which we toured in the States and afterwards we finished up the touring cycle. It was a rough, rough year so thank god it’s behind me. So we got done touring South Africa in January and I started working on my book, which should come out sometime in 2015, it’s being edited now. It’s a book called ‘Dark Days,’ which is basically about what happened over in the Czech Republic. My editor sent me back the manuscript, so I have to approve edit that by January. So that should be out sometime in the summer maybe, not sure how long it’s gonna take.

We’ll bring you more on the new Lamb of God album just as soon as we have it.
